Cumberland Gap Mountain Spring Water History
Cumberland Gap Mountain Spring Water was first bottled in 1991 at Middlesboro Coca-Cola Bottling Works. In reality, Cumberland Gap Mountain Spring was there long before this time period. In fact, Neil Barry, Jr., President, feels certain that Daniel Boone was one of their first customers! Neil Barry, Jr. emphasizes that “The Cumberland Gap pass led all of the pioneers to the West, and they must have enjoyed Cumberland Gap Water.” Our naturally fresh spring water comes directly from deep within the mountains of Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. The pristine National Park was established in 1940 and boasts over 20,000 acres of protected forests and streams. Did you know that our water is nestled in a natural break in the Appalachian Mountains? The Cumberland Gap spreads across three states: Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. The Cumberland Gap National Historic Park is a pristine environment that is maintained and regulated by the Federal government. Neil Gordon Barry, IV, Vice President of Key Accounts, feels that “once people taste Cumberland Gap Spring Water, they will keep coming back.” Neil feels that Cumberland Gap Water has a bouquet about it that is delicious.
